Nicholson’s pub that is served by the central bar that almost splits it in two with a lower level at the back.

This is a solid Central London Nicholson’s pub, just round the corner from Carnaby Street. The pub has a two bar layout which has been opened up to create a single U-shaped room with dark wooden flooring and wall panels throughout. The left hand side of the room has high banquettes and tables with pictures of Carnaby Street on the walls above. At the rear, there are some steps down to a seating area which was lit with low level lighting, creating a cosy feel in an area decorated with floral wallpaper. The right hand side of the pub has a T-shaped banquette under the front window and high tables and stools through the rest of the room, including along a drinking ledge at the rear which was cordoned off on my visit due to a leaking air conditioning unit above. Some impressive posters for the London Palladium and Fortnum and Masons add a bit of colour and visual distraction to the room, as does the decent pump clip collection snaking around the servery. I noticed TV screens in both halves of the pub, but they were turned off in favour of loud dance music on my Friday night visit. As with most Nicholson’s pubs in Central London, there is a separate dining room upstairs, but I didn’t get round to visiting.
A wide range of ales were available including Nicholson’s Pale Ale, Hilden Scullion, Growler Gladness, Wharfebank Fair Dinkum, Coach House Gunpowder Mild and Copper Dragon Black Gold, the last of which was in good shape. The staff were friendly, although I was shepherded from the left hand side of the pub to allow the cleaning staff to make a head start before closing time.
Things were a bit manic here on a late Friday night, so I’m not sure I saw the place in the best light, but even so, I thought it was another good Nicholson’s house worth checking out for the interesting ale range alone.
